From the New York Times–bestselling author: An “engaging romp” featuring a marquess determined to make a marriageable woman out of a tomboy debutante (Library Journal).
 
Arranging a season for an unruly young lady whose habit is to enter drawing rooms by sliding down banisters presents a challenge at best—especially since the boisterous Mirabelle Markham has a sister of incomparable grace.
 
Mira isn’t daunted at all by high society’s ridiculous marriage mart. Her heart belongs to Lord Charles Devere, and always has. Alas, Charles only has eyes for her ever-perfect sister, Drusilla.
 
But the Marquess of Grantley rather enjoys Mira’s jealous antics—until she goes too far and pushes her sister into the fountains. Now it’s up to Grantley to restore Mira to respectability and make her an eligible bride once again. Yet when he succeeds, the smitten Marquess begins to wish he’d left well enough alone . . .
 
The Dreadful Debutante is a delightful regency romance in the Royal Ambition series from Marion Chesney, writing as M.C. Beaton, New York Times–bestselling author of the popular Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, both of which have been adapted for TV by the BBC and PBS.
